Photojournalists complain that press center of AT did not allow them to get to location of mini-bus explosion
Photojournalist of online media outlet LB.ua Makesym Levin reported that due to additional requirements of press headquarters of the ATO he, and his colleague from IA "Ukrinform" Markiyan Lyseiko, were not able to make it to the checkpoint "Maryinka", where passenger bus exploded in the line to enter the territories controlled by Ukrainian authorities. “Detector Media” reports this, referring to the journalist's FB entry.
According to the journalists, the official press center rules require that correspondents report their routes in advance, making it impossible for them to quickly respond to major events even if they are in the vicinity. With lack of information from the site in the Ukrainian sources, Russian propaganda uses reports from the events to give its own version of the events to sway public opinion to its side.
